Backlogs Keep Getting Worse

I have been paying attention to the overall track of the backlog of claims awaiting a hearing before Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) using the numbers provided by Social Security to the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives (NOSSCR). Here are the updated numbers on the state of the backlog at certain points over about the last year and a half:
  • January 25, 2007 -- 508 days
  • May 25, 2007 -- 523 days
  • July 28, 2007 -- 528 days
  • August 31, 2007 -- 523 days
  • November 30, 2007 -- 500 days
  • February 29, 2008 -- 511 days
  • May 30, 2008 -- 523 days
  • June 27, 2008 -- 529 days
This makes one wonder how Social Security can claim with a straight face that it has a Plan to Eliminative the Hearing Backlog and Prevent Its Recurrence.
